I have stayed at the L'Avancher for a number of years now and can not recommend it highly enough, It is in a great location and really good value for money in Val'D'Isere. The rooms are comfortable and clean and warm, and for a Skiing holiday where you spend little time in the room it is perfect. More importantly the... More

My friend and I spent a very pleasant three week stay at this hotel. We were there to ski and that we did almost every day. There is a shuttle bus stop across the road making for very quick access to the slopes every morning. The return in the afternoon depends on where you finish skiing with the shuttle coming... More

I choose Hotel L'Avancher based on price value and the very favorable reviews on trip advisor. I was not disappointed. I wanted to stay someplace that was comfortable and quiet, as I was in Val D'isere to ski, not party till dawn, and didn't want to be subjected to noisy neighbors or loud people in the street. The hotel is... More

Overall this is a good place. We had a very small room that was spartan, almost monastic, with just blocks of foam for mattresses, but I think that was something of a short straw and most rooms are better. The restaurant is OK, something of a clone with the other 75 restaurants in town: how much cheese can a person... More

Good afternoon, Thank you for the time you took to share your experience, "Standard" rooms are, as the name suggests, designed in a standard and basic fashion in order to offer reasonable prices to our guests. We do have better "comfort" rooms, please ask us about different options prior to booking, As for the restaurant, I am afraid that cheese... More

Wonderfully hospitable hotel. Provided you can manage a red run, you can ski back to the door. It is only a 200m walk in the morning to start your day's skiing. Comfortable rooms, an excellent restaurant and decent wifi. Ski hire shop immediately over the road. I intend to go back next year.

Ashley, Thank you for your positive feedback, The hotel is in fact a short walk from the snow front, however you can always take the free shuttle that drops you off right by the ski lifts. If weather conditions are optimal, you can ski straight back to the hotel via the "Traversée du Laisinant" slope that runs right behind the... More

After a nightmare drive to Val d'sere due to the snowfall. We arrived at 11am and was met by the owner Fred outside the hotel. He duly allowed us to take a room straight away instead of us making us wait. This was the start of a great week at l' Avancher. Both rooms that we took were brand new... More

Dear Knight family, After a complicated journey up the mountain, it was our pleasure to make sure that you settled in quickly and started off to a great holiday! Thank you for the compliment regarding the half board menu which we offer to our hotel guests for under 30.00€. We focus on offering both quality and quantity with local products... More

After a nightmare journey up the mountain and finding out our hotel reservation was cancelled in another hotel Fred the hotel owner at L'Avancher had a last minute cancellation. He allowed us to have an earlier check in due to having slept in the car the night before in horrendous traffic. He did not charge us for the last night... More

Hi there, We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, Weather conditions can sometimes make the journey to Val d'Isère very long and tiring.

Stayed here for a week, the perfect location for a ski holiday. An 8 minute walk into town down the main high street, and a few more to the main lift unless you get the free ski bus which is very regular. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast fantastic, everything you need to be set up for the day.... More

Stayed here many times in the past. Frederick who is very pleasant is the new owner. He has set a new style. Rooms very nice. Food in the evenings excellent. Breakfast slightly less than attentive. 5 Min walk to the free ski bus. Not nose bleeding expensive.

L’Avancher blew all my expectations out of the water. I’ve never been to Val or even France so I was nervous about getting around and communicating. The staff helped with everything – they made reservations, recommendations, etc…the owner was about as nice and helpful as they come. The hotel is located about a 15 minute (max) walk from the base... More
